Lib Dem councillor in Exmouth found guilty of breach code of conduct

A Lib Dem town, district and county councillor in Exmouth has been found guilty of "discourteous and disrespectful" behaviour towards a Conservative councillor by East Devon District Council's monitoring officer.

Cllr Eileen Wragg made rude and derogatory comments to the Mayor of Exmouth, Cllr John Humphreys at Exmouth Town Council's annual meeting. This was ruled to be in breach of the council's code of conduct.

Last year, Cllr Wragg was censured by East Devon District Council's standards committee for questioning the competency of the Deputy Chief Executive in a letter to a local newspaper.
